On Monday, evangelist Franklin Graham took to Facebook to send the country a message regarding the potential indictment of 45th President Donald Trump.
“We need to pray for our country and where it is headed,” Graham wrote. “The left in Washington and across the country just can’t get their fill of attacking Donald Trump.”
“They are so paranoid of him. The onslaught against him is continual,” he explained. “There’s no question, the media, and the left manipulated the last election, and they are scared to death of Donald Trump’s possible return. So, night after night, the media runs negative stories about former President Trump.”
“Now they’re talking about the possibility of arresting him in the hopes that this would prevent him from running for president again—this would be a huge mistake,” the evangelist emphasized. “The charges against him are definitely politically motivated.”
“I would like to ask Christians across this country to pray specifically for former President Donald J. Trump, that God’s hand would be upon him, protect him, and direct him in every step he takes—and that God’s will be done,” he wrote, adding, “We need to work together to strengthen this nation—not divide and destroy it.”
President Trump emphasized Graham’s message on Truth Social on Monday by reposting it to his account.
The 45th president is currently facing a potential indictment from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) in regard to the payment of $130,000 to Stormy Daniels for a 2016 non-disclosure agreement.
Bragg is attempting to charge that the payment, facilitated by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, was an illegal campaign expenditure. However, the argument is shaky legal ground.

As previously reported by the DC Enquirer, Fox News host Mark Levin explained the situation on Sunday: “This is not hush money. These are non-disclosure agreements. Companies, individuals, and divorce parties enter into non-disclosure agreements 10,000 a day probably all across this country. How much do you have to bet the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has entered into a non-disclosure agreement? How much do you want to bet that the FBI, the Justice Department, and the U.S. Attorney have entered into non-disclosure agreements? How much do you want to bet that these news operations covering it, like MSNBC, NBC, and the rest, have entered into a non-disclosure agreement?”
“There is nothing illegal about non-disclosure agreements. The reason you have a non-disclosure agreement, whether it’s severance or something, is you’re telling people to keep your big mouth shut and in exchange for that we will take care of you. That’s not a crime. it is what it is. It’s a contract.”
“What is this D.A. doing?” he asked,” Why do they keep looking at it? Well because it was paid for by a third entity that used corporate money. So what? Who cares? He didn’t pay for it out of his campaign. Donald Trump. So there’s no question of the misuse of campaign dollars. Here’s what they are saying: They’re saying okay the misdemeanor statute of limitations has run, state felony statute of limitations has run. We can’t make a felony case anyway because it’s not a felony.”
“We have to have an underlying obstruction so we’ll look at federal law which is not even the jurisdiction of a local D.A. and federal law says what? Federal law says you can’t expend money, campaign law, for the purpose of influencing an election of this sort this way,” he stated. “But what else does it say? However, if that money is used and it has other purposes as well….then it’s not a crime.”
“So this thing isn’t a crime from the process, from the substance, in state law, in federal law. What is happening here is they’re using the law the way they are using the Constitution,” he explained. “To try to destroy the law and to destroy the Constitution. What would you expect from a radical left-wing legal bomb-thrower who’s inserted into this position by George Soros? Notice how they are all Democrat investigators and they are all Democrat jurisdictions. New York City, Atlanta, Washington D.C., I mean this is outrageous.”
It is clear that the case against Trump is politically motivated and Franklin Graham’s call for prayer is much needed given the perilous state in which America finds itself.
